SALISBURY, Md. – The Wicomico County State's Attorney's Office said a heroin dealer has been sentenced to twenty years in prison.

Officials said Arnold Darnall Miles, Sr., 48, of Wicomico County, Md. was convicted and sentenced on one count of possession with the intent to distribute heroin.

A Wicomico County Circuit Court judge sentenced Miles to the maximum sentence of 20 years in the Maryland Division of Corrections, according to the state's attorney's office.

The state's attorney said Miles is a subsequent offender. Officials said he had previously been convicted of possession with the intent to distribute marijuana in 2006, and two counts of possession with intent to distribute a narcotic in separate cases in 1992. Miles' new conviction represents his sixth drug related conviction and eleventh criminal conviction since 1986, according to the state's attorney.

Officials said Miles had been pending charges related to a drug investigation conducted by members of the Maryland State Police and Salisbury Police. Police stopped Miles on March 19, 2014 for speeding and said they noticed he was extremely nervous. Officials said investigators asked for assistance and after a brief scuffle with Miles, investigators found 47 baggies of heroin concealed in his baseball cap. Another baggie of heroin was found in Miles' pocket after his arrest.
